11/27/13 Strong nonprofit organizations build strong communities. Whether the pursuits are creative, educational, recreational or focused on health and economic stability and vitality, nonprofits matter. The Marshall County Community Foundation (MCCF) is celebrating the good work of nonprofits in Marshall County at an open house Tuesday, December 3. From 10 am to 8 pm at the Community Resource Center, 510 W Adam St, Plymouth, Indiana, the public is invited to join the celebration and learn more about how these agencies are having an impact. Refreshments will be served and Golden Ticket winners will be selected in random drawings throughout the day. Winners will receive $100 MCCF Giving Cards to contribute to the charity of their choice. If an MCCF fund supporting a nonprofit organization is selected, MCCF will contribute a matching $100 to the same organization.
The Antiquarian & Historical Society of Culver, the Marshall County Historical Society, the Marshall County Neighborhood Center, Potawatomi Park, Wythougan Valley Preservation Council, and United Way of Marshall County along with boys and girls clubs, libraries, and schools are among the organizations that will be on hand. Heartland Artists and Moontree Studios are teaming up to promote the arts in Marshall County. Local artists will provide demonstrations. Encore Performing Arts will share the new schedule of concerts and events for the upcoming year.
The selection of the Community Resource Center (CRC) as the location of this event is in itself a celebration of a project intended to benefit nonprofits. Funded with support from MCCF, the recently completed CRC fulfills a vision of more than twenty years to bring social service agencies under one roof for more effective and accessible delivery of services. The St. Joseph Medical Center Health Clinic and Health Insurance Exchange is the newest occupant.
The Making a Difference Open House coincides with a special giving opportunity to support nonprofit organizations. From now until December 31, 2013, contributions made to designated funds (those that support specific organizations) will receive a ten percent match. With more than three hundred funds at the Community Foundation, there are many opportunities for donors to support the causes that matter most to them. The match applies to organizations that already have a fund at the Foundation or those that want to start one. Donations may be by check, cash, credit card, or by going online at www.marshallcountycf.org.
